This episode features Dr. Philip Higuera, Professor of Fire Ecology, and Kyra Wolf, Ph.D. Candidate in Systems Ecology both at the University of Montana’s Franke College of Forestry and Conservation. Phil and Kyra and their colleague Bryan Shuman recently published some alarming findings on what we’re experiencing right now with wildfire. The title speaks for itself: “Rocky Mountain sub-alpine forests now burning more than any time in recent millennia.” That should get our attention.
